Fire Records are proud to release this comprehensive collection of one of the label's flagship bands from the early years.

Brings together their LPs 'Foxheads Stalk This Land', 'Headache Rhetoric', and 'Forever, Until Victory! The Singles Collection'.

Close Lobsters stormed up the indie charts with their unique melodic jangle pop and skewed world-view.

By the release of their first full length "Foxheads Stalk This Land" they were finding early backing from all of the music papers, as well as Rolling Stone and American college radio.

Global touring and a more aggressive stance, lyrically and musically, would make the follow up "Headache Rhetoric" a bigger success.
